Why do i need to type my username/password in two times before i can access a password protected page?

This is because when you type the address as http://www.domain.se/private the web server will need to expand that address to http://www.domain.se/private/ for it to be correct, not something you usually think about.

In this case it causes the web browser to not send username and password when it tries to access http://www.domain.se/private/, which causes the login prompt to appear again.

If you use http://www.domain.se/private/ from the beginning as url in the browser, or change the link you are following in this way, the problem will be eliminated.
